Sample letter to ask a retraction or correction from the media


I have always loved reading Cosmopolitan and I am a loyal subscriber for two years now. The articles that range from Fashion, Fitness, Beauty and Lifestyle has always been interesting and read worthy.

There was recently an article on women entrepreneurs and it included details about their venture. I am proud and excited about the fact that I was one of them. However I would like to express my concern over the errors committed in my firm’s feature. There were several mistakes possibly because the facts weren’t crosschecked by your writers with me.

A magazine of such eminence and with a large subscriber base cannot afford to commit such errors. Its reputation depends on its ability to provide factual information. I have sent you the article with all the required corrections.

I hope to see the corrected article in your next issue. Thank you.

    This is in continuation to the discussion we had last week for getting my son’s detail printed in the matrimony section of your newspaper Great Timing of India”. After evaluating all the other media newsprints and brands I agreed to your proposal for the printing. I told the concerned person that we follow Hinduism and that my 30 years old son is staying in US since last two years. He has done his MBA M.PHIL and working in one of the IT company in Chicago. His height is 5 feet 7 inches and has fairer skin color. He is looking out for a bride who should be of almost same age and have an IT background. We being liberal enough are open for all religions but the bride match should be educated enough along with good height as my son.

    But today morning when I went through the classified I did not find anything as per the proposed specification. Details of my son were given correctly but the expected features and specifications of the bride were wrongly printed. Instead of no bar for religion, no bar for age was printed. Also, nothing related to her background from IT field was mentioned anywhere.

    Please do the required correction as we have already started receiving calls. We would not like to entertain any of the proposals that are against the given details.
